Welcome to Underbone Tuner

Underbone tuner is a free online magazine for Underbones, Scooters, Backbones and occasionally we might squeeze in a big bike or two . We have been covering small motorcycles modifying culture for over 8 years already and still counting. We have the latest updates/news on motorcycle racing events from all over the country such as circuit, motocross, flat track, endurance, trail and supermoto. We cover motorshows from all over the country. We cover the latest bike launches and the latest trends in bike modifying culture.

But at the core of Underbone Tuner is the bike modifying / customizing culture. We scour the country for the best motorcycle builders/modifiers. We feature the owners of these amazing bikes and the talented teams and individuals behind these bikes. We give you the story behind those builds and hopefully we inspire others to keep this fascinating culture alive.

This website is dedicated to all motorcycle enthusiasts, this our life, this is our passion, this is who we are. We may be riding different bikes but we share the same fascination and love for motorcycles. We are all brothers in two wheels.

Club: ARousers Club Cebu

Robert is a SPA receptionist by trade but he has a deep fascination
for naked bikes and the European street fighter bikes. Once he got
his Rouser 220 he had a lot of ideas he wanted to integrate into his
bike. There were no ready made aftermarket parts and accessories for
the Rouser so he had to make everything custom made and custom machined
based on his drafted out specifications. He really wanted the bike
to look aggressive and he wanted it to be agile. Eventually he pursued
the street fighter naked bike look, the bike is still a work in progress
the custom front fender is still being made and he is already on the
planning stages for the Ducati styled chassi tubing under the tank area.

Robert is open for any inquiries about his bike and its modifications
he is more than happy to share his ideas on how he built his bike to
fellow Rouser enthusiasts. You can contact him at 09165935036, he would
also like to acknowledge Fenrose Bikeshop of Dawis Talisay and Toto
Mati for helping him build his bike.

The original seat design was carved out to give more emphasis on the tank,
this makes the bike much bolder and aggressive looking.

The pro-taper motocross handle bars makes the bike more aggressive looking
and it improves the handling a lot making it much more agile compared to the
stock version. It enables you to perform quick and accurate sudden changes in
direction like a dirt bike.
